8 Books That You Need To Bring Into The New Year

With school winding down and break upon us, why not take the time and read.

8 Books That You Need To Bring Into The New Year

Unfortunately with all the craziness of school I don't get to read as much as I would like to. That's why I am so happy that school is over and I can take the time to read a few new books I've had on my list for awhile.

A few months ago I wrote and article on eight books that changed my life. And today I am here to give you another eight books that are must reads. I've read a good amount of books since that article so it was hard to choose just eight. But I thought since many of us are starting break it would be a great time to give people some ideas. Self help books an inspirational books are my jam and I am so excited to share this list with you, so here it is!

1. "Girl Wash Your Face" by Rachel Hollis

2. "ACT Like a lady" by Keltie Knight & Becca Tobin & Jac Vanek

3. "Get Out of Your Head" by Jennie Allen

4. "You Are a Badass" by Jen Sincero

5. "Don't Overthink it" by Anne Bogel

6. "Buy Yourself The F*cking Lilies" by Tara Schuster

7. "Your Next Level Life" by Karen Arrington

8. "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen Covey

You might notice a few recurring authors on this list but it's because there books really are just that great. I loved everyone of these books and they have helped me with dealing with my professional and personal life. I know theres this weird stigma around self help and self love books but I think they are one of the best genres. So I say this winter break go to your local book store and grab a book that makes you feel happy, no matter what genre it is.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.
